How Classrooms Are Changing

School has changed a lot since your parents were kids! Here’s how.

The Front of the Class

There was a time when “Alright, class, copy these notes’ meant looking to chalkboards, dry erase boards, and overheard projectors. But now we have SMART boards, which are large interactive tough boards connected to wifi.

Researching

Computers

Tablets may soon replace the typical laptop, with their smaller size and detachable keyboards. Soon every student is going to carrying around his or her own Chromebook or tablet.

Books

Nothing compares to the weight of lugging around books from class to class. We’ve gone from dragging around multiple, 5-pound books to 1 iPad or Kindle that carries e-books. Chiropractors, beware, you might be going out of business!

Distractions

Take a second to think how far technology has come.  And just imagine how ancient what we have now, will seem to our kids!
